With over 10 years of heritage and pedigree making some of the world’s most memorable and successful racing franchises – such as GTR, Need For Speed, and Test Drive – Slightly Mad Studios once again pioneered and innovated in 2015 by launching the critically-acclaimed and best-selling Project CARS; a game wholly funded and created by a passionate community of racing fans from around the world.
With tens of thousands of players testing the game, giving feedback on it, and creating assets for it throughout development, Project CARS has been hailed as a true competitor to long-established stalwarts, and as the market leader in both visual fidelity and technical expertise.
With an existing schedule of ON DEMAND content already underway to continue providing Project CARS with fresh new features, updates, and great things to play with throughout the year, Slightly Mad Studios now turns its attention to the future with the announcement of the continuation of the franchise with Project CARS 2. And once again, the sequel will be created, tested, and ultimately approved by you – the gamers - through the WMD Portal crowd-funding platform.
Continuing to innovate and dominate in the racing genre, Project CARS 2 aims to include the largest track roster ever with 50 unique locations and over 200 playable tracks – and introduces ‘loose surface’ racing with dirt, gravel, mud, and snow courses. On the vehicle side, new classes of Rallycross, never-before-seen Concepts, and Banned Race Cars will be included and players will be seamlessly connected with each other via Co-Op Career, Online Track Days, Broadcast eSports, and your own personal and customizable Test Track.
Project CARS 2 is the next evolution in the award-winning racing series, featuring the most iconic cars under the most thrilling of conditions to deliver the “Ultimate Driver Journey” experience and adrenaline rush.
